Faja dos Padres Madeira
#15 of 255 things to do in Madeira Islands
Such a tranquil and secluded sport far away from the crowds with a jetty for kids to launch themselves off and an excellent restaurant with super tame lizards joining you if allowed.
Entering the sea involves a climb down steps from the jetty or a slightly tricky clamber across the rocky beach but for the sense of seclusion and privacy it is well worth it...Oh - and if you or your children hav...

The museum offers audio guides for every visitor in multiple languages, with special versions of the text adapted for children (very practical when the family members are fluent in different languages).
It's very understandable also for kids and is audio-guided in many languages.

Miradouro do Cristo Rei do Garajau Madeira
#48 of 255 things to do in Madeira Islands
If you visit in summer it will be packed with local families enjoying the sun and sea.. Also respect the sea as it can be dangerous but in the high season their are Lifeguards to keep everyone safe.
The kids took that down to the beach for a milk shake and enjoyed that the lower station is unmanned :-) Thoroughly enjoyed it - and it's all free (apart from the cable car and milkshake, Oh and the coffee)

It really designed for family & kids to provide European beach conditions rather than the black lava sands that are familiar to Madeira.
We stayed at the Savoy Saccharum and took the kids here as it was a short stroll across the road.
